I have a bulova watch that I inherited. I gather from the L9 on the back that it was made in 1959. Other than that I know almost nothing about it. It has a black face, with a second hand dial inset just above the 6 o'clock mark. I am fairly certain that it doesn't have the original band. The name Bulova is on the face, and is stamped on the back and the stem as well. It has a plastic crystal.
